I don't see any sluggish-ness in "emacs -Q" here, FWIW.

Do you have any measurements that would show the slowdown in numbers?
Also, what is your value of system-configuration-options and
system-configuration-features?  And which version of Emacs is that?

What happens if you don't make any of the above customizations?

Also, do you have the Symbola font installed?  If not, can you install
it and see if that makes things better?

Actually, the default fontset is supposed to "just work", so I'd be
interested to hear why you needed to customize that.

I'm trying.  But it's hard, since for now I cannot even reproduce it.
